A LOOK BACK AT THE WEEK THAT WAS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL
October 1, 2006

SCS.com Week five was a good week in the college football world. Many teams experienced the agony of defeat, while just as many experienced the euphoria of victory as the season took another step toward the national championship. Rivalries were won and lost, and seasons took both steps up and back. Houston tested Miami, and QB Kevin Kolb once again showed the nation what he can do. Nebraska needed overtime to take out the upstart Jayhawks of Kansas, Illinois pushed Michigan State off the edge into a downward spiral, and Texas Tech used its vaunted air attack to sink the Aggies as the young season continued to excite.

BEST GAME

Texas Tech over Texas A&M - It was everything an in-state rivalry should be. With Texas Tech threatening to run away with the game, the Aggies made a second half push to take the game and send the Raiders home with another loss, but some fourth quarter heroics led by quarterback Graham Harrell and wide-out Robert Johnson allowed the Raiders to take this installment in a bitter rivalry for second place among the state’s teams.
Runner-Up: Nebraska over Kansas

BIGGEST UPSET

Georgia Tech over Virginia Tech - Both Calvin Johnson and the Wramblin’ Wreck’s defense were electric in a victory over Virginia Tech this weekend. After establishing a 21-0 first quarter lead, the Yellow Jackets never looked back and soundly beat the Hokies at Lane Stadium. Georgia Tech improved to 4-1 on the season and should continue to impress with Calvin Johnson, Reggie Ball, and former OU running back Tashard Choice providing a good offensive threat.

BEST TEAM PERFORMANCE

Texas - Granted they were playing the Sam Houston State Bearkats, but Colt McCoy was solid and the Texas defense was absolutely devastating. McCoy was 13 of 15 for 178 with two touchdowns. With Oklahoma on the horizon, the Longhorns are looking very promising.
Runner-Up: California Golden Bears

MOST DISAPPOINTING TEAM PERFORMANCE

Army - A week after defeating the Baylor Bears and two weeks removed from a near-upset of Texas A&M, Army absolutely flopped against a mediocre (at best) Rice team who had been manhandled for most of the season. Rice QB Chase Clement was 29 of 39 for 299 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-14 thrashing of the Knights.
Runner-Up: Michigan State

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

Garrett Wolfe – Running Back – Northern Illinois: Wolfe ran for 198 yards and four touchdowns, leading the Huskies to a 48-14 win over Indiana State.
Kevin Kolb – Quarterback – University of Houston: Kolb is certainly making a push to be an early first round pick as this season progresses. Against the very good defense of the Miami Hurricanes, Kolb was 18 of 28 for 196 yards.
Chase Clement – Quarterback – Rice: Clement was 29 of 39 for 299 yards and five touchdowns in a 48-14 thrashing of Army.

THREE THINGS WE LEARNED

#1: Michigan State will continue in a downward spiral similar to last year after losing the close game to Notre Dame a few weeks ago.
#2: Houston quarterback Kevin Kolb is the real deal.
#3: The Big XII Championship is most likely to be between Mizzou and Texas.
